Angling for a fishing award
THE Biggenden Amateur Fishing Club presentation day was held at Paradise Dam on Saturday, February 11.
Even though it was predicted to be extremely hot, it turned out to be quite pleasant and the day was enjoyed by 31 members.
The first meeting for the year was held, followed by an enjoyable lunch of prawns, oysters and barbecue then an array of delicious sweets.
Presentation of trophies for the 2016 fishing year finished off the day.
Congratulations go to the Champion Angler for the year, Tyler Roberts.
The Maitland Family Trophy was again won by the Roberts family.
The David Platten Memorial Trophy was won by Russell Maitland.
The club will hold its annual Junior Kids Fishing Day on March 11.
This year it will be held at Mingo Crossing due to unsuitable fishing at Paradise Dam from excess weed along the banks.
